WK Lawyers specialise in helping people prepare their wills. This is one of our fastest growing areas of our practice.
Many people put off making a will because they think it will be too hard, or too expensive. We make the process quick, easy and affordable while also being thorough.
Unlike getting a home will kit, seeing a lawyer about your will gives you the benefit of an expert writing out your wishes in a way that avoids any doubt while also providing you with legal advice about how it all works.
For most of our clients a will can be finalised after a phone call, a letter, and a face to face meeting at our offices. The time between your first contact with us and leaving our office with a valid will can be as short as just two weeks.
WK Lawyers can also prepare Power of Attorney documents for financial and legal decision-making and Advance Care Directive documents for medical decision-making to cover you in the event that you’re unable to make decisions for yourself and need someone else to do it for you.
Discounted rates apply to Seniors Card Holders and members of the Australian Workers Union.
If someone close to you has passed away and you have been appointed as executor of their estate, or if they have not left a will at all, then we can help you.
For many people it is a requirement that the executor or administrator apply for a Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration after someone has passed away. One example of its importance is that a deceased person’s name cannot be taken off of the title to real estate that they owned in life until one of these Grants is provided.
The paperwork required to get a Grant is notorious, even among lawyers, as being difficult. We make the process easy for you during what is undoubtedly a stressful time.
We can also help you by looking into matters such as outstanding life insurance policies and superannuation benefits.
We can also assist you if a relative has passed away and you have only received a small amount from their estate, or if you have been left out completely. Certain relatives are able to make claims for family provision to get a greater share of a deceased person’s estate. You may have a right to make such a claim.
